King LC et al. – It was concluded that although the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS) appears to be a useful measure of general neurocognitive functioning for inpatients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder, clinical interpretation beyond a general factor (i.e., Total Scale score) should be done with caution in this population. Limitations of the present study and directions for future research are discussed.
